The Vermont State Police is investigating the death of a man who had been incarcerated at Marble Valley Regional Correctional Facility in Rutland.
Jack Martin, 49, of Rutland City informed Department of Corrections staff on Friday morning, Dec. 9 he was having difficulty breathing, and he was subsequently transported to Rutland Regional Medical Center for treatment. He died at the hospital Sunday afternoon.
The preliminary investigation does not indicate that the death is suspicious. An autopsy will be performed at the Vermont Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in Burlington to determine the cause and manner of death.
Martin has been in custody of the Department of Corrections since Oct. 11 following his arrest on Vermont charges of assault and robbery, and possession of heroin.
